believe me, Earl, outside of music & lit, healthcare is one topic i can talk about all day, but unlike music & lit, pondering healthcare generally makes me want to break something; i honestly cannot think of any other industry that is more complex and with as many tentacles reaching into practically every area of our lives; is the answer a form of socialized medicine, and can such a setup work in the type of economy that the US has? i've no idea of course, but either way, whether socialized medicine or not, the working stiff will continue to be stiffed; cheers

Arb: I have a very simple approach to issues like this; If you are in business, any kind of business, even the business of governing, someone must pay your company in order for it to survive. Supply side economics believe that in a healthy economy, money will "trickle down" to those in need of it most. While this theory has never been universally embraced, I can assure you that "the cost of doing business" will always trickle down to those that can least afford it.
